The Sibling Leadership Network (SLN) is a national network that provides siblings of people with disabilities the information, support, and tools to advocate with their brothers and sisters and to promote the issues important to them and their entire families. Tennessee’s chapter of the SLN is Tennessee Adult Brothers and Sisters (TABS), which is supported by Vanderbilt Kennedy Center and the Tennessee Council on Developmental Disabilities. The 2021 virtual SLN conference will be held June 18-19, with post-conference workshops on the evenings of June 22-24. There are also pre-conference sessions on June 18 that offer CEUs. The conference is open to adult siblings of people with disabilities, parents, people with disabilities, and professionals. Workshop speakers include TABS leader Emma Shouse Garton.
